Israel has put its forces on alert mainly on the northern front with Syria and Lebanon fearing a possible Iranian attack in revenge for the Israeli bombing of the Iranian drone base in Syria where several senior commanders were killed, Arabi21.com reported on Sunday.

Israel’s Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper said that the Israeli army commissioned a large number of monitoring units in the occupied Golan Heights to maintain surveillance on the cameras and radar systems and to remain in contact with soldiers on the ground in order to remain ready for any Iranian response.

“Israel is waiting for a possible Iranian attack in the Golan Heights or any other places in the world in response to striking the T-4 base,” Israel’s Haaretz said.

The paper reported military expert Amos Harel saying: “As time is passing, the decision-makers in Tehran are getting more aware of the complications that would accompany their revenge; however, the practical fear of the Israeli security institution is that there is a possible retaliation.”

Last night several Iranian bases were targeted in Syria killing 26 people, state TV said. Iran denied reports.

“All these reports over attack on an Iranian military base in Syria and the martyrdom of several Iranian military advisers in Syria are baseless,” an unnamed source told Iran’s semi-official Tasnim news agency.
